While the owner of a 2007 Suzuki GSX-R750 motorcycle was out of town on vacation for several days, the motorcycle was stolen from the carport his residence in the 1200 block of Taylor Avenue North in Seattle. When he returned on February 19, 2013, he discovered the theft and quickly reported it to the Seattle Police Department.

Seattle Police verified the theft and entered the vehicle identification number into the state and federal crime computers. That process automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the Suzuki.

Minutes later, officers with the Seattle Police Department received the silent LoJack homing signal transmitting from the stolen motorcycle on the Police Tracking Computer installed in their patrol cars. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the officers quickly tracked the motorcycle to NE 85th Street & Evanston Avenue North where it was found abandoned.  The bike did not appear to be damaged aside from the ignition lock assembly.  The approximate value is $6,150.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the Suzuki motorcycle in July of 2007 when it was purchased new at Tacoma Motorsports in Tacoma, Washington.
